Has the price  of Ash at roadside / trackside  moved up or down  recently ,as I believe  a lot being felled at the present time?

I’ve a job starting hopefully in a few weeks, it’s very decent grade ash and I’ll be getting £60-65 p/ton roadside.

It seems to have dropped a bit locally. Been offered some at £60 delivered which was a suprise. Still mostly around £70 though.

That seems very very cheap to me, we where getting £57,50 per tonne in 2019, the current market i believe is very good with chip/firewood grade softwood being about £70 tonne R/S and sawlogs now above £100 a tonne R/S, this is in the northwest UK other areas may be cheaper but if i could buy it at £35-£45 tonne i would be very happy at that, Up here they seems to be a dramatic shortage of Firewood available as the big boys like Jenkinsons and Stobarts seem to be swallowing it all up, I know one lad who has just bought a couple of load of softwood and its cost him £93,25 delivered to his yard and the haulage would be 45-50 mile so not a long way but it was dear enough.

At that rate its cheaper to bring in kiln dried crates from Lithuania and Latvia.

They've also gone up in price thankfully. Going rate for a loose cube wholesale is £70-75 collected for UK wood which is cheaper than the prices I've seen/been offered.

Its the haulage costs that are making imports costly of late,  but a strong pound is countering that.     My supplier says that container hire and shipping has increased hugely in price since lockdown.  Containers are in short supply as many are being used to store Covid medical protective gear.
